Dr. Gregory L. Reece

Reece Pix Standing

Greg holds a Ph.D in Religious Studies from the Claremont Graduate University with a specialty in philosophy of religion and theology, an M.Div. from the Vanderbilt University Divinity School, a B.A. from Samford University, and an A.A. from Martin Methodist College.

His studies in philosophy of religion, particularly his work on irony and religious belief, have led Greg to explore religion from its more idiosyncratic border regions rather than from its more stable center. In pursuit of an understanding or religion, he has attended an Elvis Impersonator contest in Las Vegas, celebrated the birth of the King of Rock and Roll in Memphis, attended UFO and Tesla Technology conventions, had his molecules rejuvenated via the alien technology of the Integratron, visited Roswell and Area 51, had a close encounter with the extraterrestrials known as the Tall Whites, explored an underground cavern rumored to lead to a subterranean civilization, hunted Bigfoot outside of Paris, Texas, attended a Satanic mass, interviewed vampires, been trained in the art of exorcism, and gone hiking with a werewolf.

Greg lives at Brookehouse, a big, old home in central Alabama, along with his wife, his son, and his daughter. In his spare time, he likes to build robot, spaceship, and ray-gun sculptures from junk he finds at the thrift store.

Greg is the author of Creatures of the Night: In Search of Ghosts, Vampires, Werewolves and Demons; Weird Science and Bizarre Beliefs: Mysterious Creatures, Lost Worlds and Amazing Inventions; UFO Religion: Inside Flying Saucer Cults and Culture; Elvis Religion: The Cult of the King; and Irony and Religious Belief.

    I first heard about Weird Science and Bizarre Beliefs on the Last Podcast on the Left Hollow Earth episode (192) and decided to get a copy for myself. I absolutely fell in love with it and I take it everywhere I go. Your approach to the super nature – a cross between healthy skepticism but genuine desire to believe – made it a delightful read. I’m just about finished with Creatures of the Night now, and loved it just the same. Thank you for writing books about the supernatural that are coherent, articulate, and enjoyable. You will always have a place on my bookshelf.
